Crown of Thorns question

So, Boom has been an "un-official" member of the band for the past few years. After listening to the San Deigo boot last night I started thinking, Why are there no keys at the begining of Crown of Thorns? If its out of respect for Andy, I can understand, but I love those keys and I wish I could hear them with the song live.

Anyone feel me on this??

    Yes ..I agree with you...and moreover, it´s strange because they did play the keyboard part the first time they played it back in 2000, with brendan o´brian

    Boom hasn't got what it takes.

    Boom is really lucky to be getting a paycheck. He's great on LBC, Crazy Mary, and Life Wasted Reprise....but beyond that, he's not needed.

    Then it would be "Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns" as the full song is titled. I always wondered that myself.

    Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns is woithout doubt my favourite song of all time, there is something about that just hits me every time i hear it.

    anyway the only reasons i can think that they don't play the full version is that boom can't play it. either that or as some sort of mark of respect for andy.

    Guess it's too personal for Ed to play. He probably wouldn't feel right with that bit added :)

    ...why is this personal for ed; this is one of the few things I have in common with vedder, neither of us ever met andy wood.
    Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
